The Buddy Holly Story

Other mistake: The suit jackets that Buddy and JP Richardson were wearing at the last concert had to have been sewn incorrectly, especially the sleeves. The seam at the top of the sleeve caused bunching all the way down the sleeve. Buddy's jacket looked like it was buttoned incorrectly at the top, but it was probably also a sewing mishap and poor fitting. So, the way the jackets were sewn was one big mistake (or wardrobe malfunction). (01:40:44)


Factual error: When Buddy and the musicians tour bus is towed to the Clear Lake Auditorium for the final concert before the fatal air crash, the canopy states that the concert is on the 3rd of February. The fatal accident that took Buddy, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens occurred at 1am on 3rd February 1959 so the canopy should have read 2nd February.
